On 25 June 2019, Eau de Paris will organise at its public centre, Pavillon de l'eau, the second 'Metamorphoses Workshop' (Ateliers des Métamorphoses), on the theme: 'Prospective, science-fiction and water tomorrows'.
The Metamorphoses Workshops are future-oriented reflection fora, organised to draw on the knowledge of experts from outside the sector, contributing to discussions on water with their expertise.
This time, the panel, moderated by Eau de Paris' General Manager Benjamin Gestin and composed of four actors from the sectors of journalism, academia, literature and economy, will discuss why and how science fiction can help to understand the current environmental problems and situations and to imagine possible futures.
